Community leaders and Auckland Council staff welcomed new Warkworth Town Hall facility coordinators Adrian and Alex Hayward with morning tea at the hall on October 1.
The newly created co-ordinators job is to promote public use of the facility.
Adrian told the gathering that as the world became more digitally orientated, it was important that the
Town Hall be seen more on digital media.
To help achieve this, the Haywards have created a new website (warkworthtownhall.nz) and are promising to spice up the town hall’s Facebook page, which will be used to publicise events.
Future plans include a photographic competition on the theme of Changing Warkworth, where entrants will be invited to upload images to the website and Facebook page.
Another competition will see primary schools invited to submit photo collages on the same theme.
Sometime in mid-December, the Haywards are planning a Christmas gift market at the hall, encouraging shoppers to buy gifts from local stallholders rather than travel to Albany.
Adrian said builders had done a great job renovating the hall, but now they had left, it was important people started to come in and make use of it.
